Dr. Don C. Locke is a distinguished Professor Emeritus at North Carolina State University, and retired Director of Diversity and Multiculturalism at the University of North Carolina at Asheville. He authored the book Increasing Multicultural Understanding, which was a SAGE Publications Best Seller.
Given his experience and expertise in the world of diversity, we are excited to have him as our featured speaker to discuss the following:
· Workforce diversity in Asheville - how it has progressed (or not)
· Personal experience in Asheville as a professional of color - how has Dr. Locke’s experiences differed from his previous professional endeavors
Dr. Locke will also offer words of wisdom, advice, and encouragement for multicultural students and professionals residing in Asheville.
